Checking timing on my 2002 130 manual. Not got the crankshaft pulley off so limited reference points.
I have the locking pin, can't shift (despite trying everything everybody was kind enough to suggest but heat - still wondering who has my tools) glowplugs in cyl 1&2
Using technical tool (timber with coachbolts into holes in steel wheel ) I can turn the engine over but still rather in fits and starts.
So to avoid (and I may be worrying too much) stressing the flywheel lugs or damaging the casting that the sensor fits into by mistake I'm trying to line up using a camera. Trouble is I'm not sure what I'm looking for.
So to the point
Thanks everybody - much appreciated.
